The National School of Government (NSG) has been established to develop “a professional, responsive and capable public sector”. As part of its mission, NSG collaborates with higher education institutions in South Africa, and the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) is one of them. NSG has partnered with TUT in the ​delivery of Emerging and Advanced Development Management Programmes. These programmes were approved by Senate as credit bearing Short Learning Programmes (SLP). Their articulation routes are the National Diploma and B Tech in Public Management, respectively.
The involvement of TUT in the delivery of these programmes for the NSG gives the University an opportunity to directly make a contribution towards building the capacity of the state. This is beyond the monetary benefit of third-stream income. The partnership asserts TUT’s competitive edge in the knowledge market. It profiles its capacity as a national asset which exists for the public good. The articulation arrangements are structured to attract experienced government officials to, upon completion of the programmes, further their studies with the University. This gives TUT an opportunity to attract matured students into its mainstream programmes. The University’s association with NSG further assists  in curricula development endeavours, where contextual relevance of its instructional programmes is assured.

The undertaking of compliance and enforcement activities forms a critical component of implementing the NEMA and the specific environmental management Acts (SEMAs), and is an executive function allocated to national, provincial and local organs of state according to the Constitution. The short learning programme (SLP) will be offered within the Centre for Environmental Health at TUT.​​
